Mindset

things of God

- must be careful where we get our information - 2 Tim. 3:16-17

- must be careful who we believe - Rom. 1:16; 10:17

- Col. 3:1-3, 5a, 10 raised, seek things above, set mind on things above, earthly body dead, new man, knowledge

athletic metaphor, run with endurance the race, fixing our eyes on Jesus

deliberate choice, willfully direct mind, true, honorable, right, pure, lovely, good repute, excellence, worthy of praise, dwell on these things

Gal. 2:20 been crucified with Christ, no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me

knowledge from God’s word applied to your life, resulting in spiritual strength from God

God empowers the people who obey gospel, set mind on things of God

set mind on obtaining crown of life, heaven, eternal life – Col. 3:2

- consider self dead to all other things – Col. 3:5

- remove all other distractions from mind, focus completely on everything must do to win

knowledge, carefully study every aspect with of spirituality from God’s word: obey, worship, live according to His word

live as an Olympian, exercise control in all things, reward, discipline, make body slave, so not disqualified, carefully study every aspect with of sport: diet, physical and mental health, sports psychology, location of events, weather, competition, clothing and apparel, physical mechanics to make body perform at its peak, etc.

not care about other things of the world, or will get off track and pursue other things

athletic metaphor (run, box) win, compete, exercise control in all things, reward, discipline, make body slave, so not disqualified

You’re paying a price, for setting your mind on the things of God!, Matt. 16:24-26 deny self, take up cross, follow Jesus, lose life, not exchange soul

count all things as loss for the sake of Christ, in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ, counting them as rubbish to gain Christ, and be found in Him

pressing on to lay hold of eternal life

pressing on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus

do all things for the sake of the gospel

’ You’ll be rewarded, for paying the price and setting your mind on the things of God!

Jesus coming again, remain each man according to his deeds, the price Jesus paid, and the price you pay, are worth it

things of Man

We are doing Satan’s work, when our minds are set on the things of man!, had worldly thoughts, not godly thoughts, whenever we put human reasoning, logic, emotions, desires before God’s word, our minds are set on the things of men

any time we sin, we’ve taken our mind off the things of God

- Is your mind set on the things of God? - Are you paying the price? - Are you look forward to the reward? - inv.: begin setting your mind on the things of God today - begin paying the price today / receive the promise of the reward today

1 Corinthians 7:32-34 1 Timothy 5:5 Do we stop caring for the things of the Lord when we get married? 1 Corinthians 7:29 You need to give spiritual things priority over earthly things Matthew 6:24, 33 Exodus 20:3 Put God first in all things – let Him have the first place and the preeminence Colossians 1:18 1 John 2:15-17 Ecclesiastes 12:13 Galatians 2:20 Be mindful of him, pray to find His will that you may please Him Ecclesiastes 12:1 Hebrews 11:5 Romans 8:8 Christ.Is.The.Mystery_ Jeff.In V-3 N-7 Sunday_ 63-0728 He is the same. He was the prophets; He was in them; He was in the Psalms; He was in the history; and He is the things to come, the same yesterday, today, and forever. If that's what He is, and we believe it, don't we? Then if He is that, then He should be the principal Theme of our talking, of our thinking, of our singing, of our walks; He should be the principal Theme of our life. If He's the principal Theme of the Bible, and the Bible is in us, then He should be the principal Theme of everything that we do, say, or think, should be Christ. Pray, Pray, read your Bible everyday to learn how to care for the things of God 1 Thessalonians 5:17 2 Timothy 3:15-17
